RP here if you are anywhere in Hogwarts besides a dorm or a class (hallways, Great Hall, Hospital Wing, etc.).

Charlotte walked into the library and inhaled deeply. The smell of paper, and ink, and book dust, filled her nose. It was the smell she associated with bookstores and libraries, and it was one of her favorite smells in the world. She set down her heavy bookbag next to a table and began to wander the extensive shelves of the Hogwarts library, searching for something to help her with her Transfiguration essay.

"Yes!" Charlotte cried. Madam Pince poked her head around a bookshelf and glared at her. Charlotte smiled apologetically. She had finally finished her Transfiguration essay, and before curfew. She thought she had earned the right to yell a little in the library. She cleaned up her work and grabbed her bag, then headed bag to the common room for some well-deserved relaxation.

Leigha walked into the girls bathroom that was just down the corridor from the common room. "Amy?" she called.

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments "Yah?" Amy said.

"What's up?" Leigha asked.


message 8: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Charlotte went into the library.


message 9: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Valerie and Rae followed.


message 10: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
"Is there anything in particular that we're looking for?" said Charlotte.


message 11: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Valerie shook her head, "I think I'll just look around."


message 12: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
"I think I'll do the same," Charlotte said.

Leigha and Dax walked into the library. "What'm I doing here, again?" asked Dax.

"Looking at books," Leigha said innocently.


message 13: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Valerie looked through the books.

Crimzon was already sitting down, reading a book about vampires.


message 14: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"This loks interesting!" Rae said, showing it to Valerie and Charlotte.

Steven and Eve glared at each other.


message 15: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Valerie walked over, "What is it?"


message 16: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Charlotte leaned over Rae's shoulder to look at the book. "What language is that?"

Dax and Leigha walked over to Steven and Eve. "Um, what's up?" asked Leigha, though she was pretty sure she knew the answer.


message 17: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"I think it's something really ancient, like from Mesopotamia or something," Rae said, guessing. It was actually Arabic.

"He is an immature prick who steals my lines," Eve said to Leigha.

"No, she stole my lines. In any event, she's majorly overreacting," Steven added to Leigha. Eve shook her head as if Steven were a small child making an obvious mistake.


message 18: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Madam Pince looked at them with an eyebrow raised.

Valerie noticed it wasn't Mesopotamia, only because she had a Arabian friend back at her neighborhood, "It's Arabic."


message 19: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Leigha cracked up as quietly as she could. "I should've known," she said.

Dax smiled.

Charlotte glanced at it. "Hey, close enough. Arabic came from the same place, just some centuries later." She chose a book from the shelves. "Hey, I think this is Ancient Greek."


message 20: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Valerie shot a look at Charlotte then went searching for books.


message 21: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Leigha looked at Dax. "We'd best at least pretend to look for books, otherwise Madam Pince will kick us out."

"Good point," Dax agreed. He pretended to be scanning the shelves.


message 22: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Crimzon smiled a bit.

Valerie found an Acient Egyptian book.


message 23: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
"I should find a translation for this," said Charlotte. "It seems interesting." The paintings in the book showed the architecture of Ancient Greece.

Leigha pulled a book from a shelf. "Hey, come look at this."


message 24: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Crimzon walked over.


message 25: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Leigha pointed at the picture on the cover of the book. "Does that look... Odd, to you?


message 26: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments "What is it?" Crimzon asked.


message 27: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
"I'm not entirely sure," said Leigha. "It's some sort of creature... But I've never seen anything like it."


message 28: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments "Me niether."


message 29: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Dax overheard the conversation. "Y'know, you could read the title of the book, and it'd probably tell you what it is."

Leigha stuck her tongue out at him. "Let's see... It says Serpopards of Mesopotamia. No wonder why they're so strange-looking."

"A serpo-what?" Steven and Eve asked simultaneously. They glared at each other.

"A serpopard," Rae said. "It's an ancient mythical creature. Experts can't agree whether it has the body of a leopard and the neck and head of a snake, or if it's a lioness with an extremely long neck. There's good evidence on both sides."

((Yes I did Google the word "serpopard" haha))


message 31: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
((Haha I was trying to find some strange creature.... I found the name and I had to Google it too!))

Leigha squinted at the picture. "Well, this one looks like it has the body of a leopard and the head of a snake..."


message 32: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"But do you see the ears? They're rounded like a lion's. And snakes don't have ears," Rae pointed out. Eve was too busy glaring at Steven to notice the conversation.


message 33: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Leigha leaned closer to the picture. "Huh. You have a point."


message 34: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
((Here are some pictures of serpopards in their original "context", if you will....

They do seem to have ears...))


message 35: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
((Haha I did my research!))

Rae smiled, proud of herself. "You should check out the book and read more about them."


message 36: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
"You should," Dax agreed. "Then we could mess with the first years and tell them that serpopards live in the kitchens!"

Leigha shoved him. "You are such a jerk!" She did think she'd check it out, though. It'd be interesting, and it would definitely help with Care of Magical Creatures. She smiled back at Rae.


message 37: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Crimzon smiled, "Interesting. There must have been myths about it. Anyone here know Mesopatamian language she asked as she opened the book seeing the language.


message 38: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"What's this about terrifying First Years?" Eve asked, momentarily not glaring at Steven.

"Telling them we have serpopards in the kitchens," Rae said.


message 39: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Now Leigha was glaring at Dax. "That is so mean," she told him.

((The "serpopards in the kitchens" thing was sort of a reference to the OotP video game.... If you've played it, you might get it.))


message 40: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
((No, I haven't...what happened?))

"No it's not, it's fun," Eve defended. Steven shook his head.

"I agree with Leigha. That's mean," he said.

"You just agree with her because I don't," Eve scoffed.


message 41: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
((One of the tasks the trio has to complete is to get some first years to go to a detention with McGonagall, and Ron threatens to set the dragon in the kitchens after them if they don't go. So I just threw in serpopards...))

"Thanks, Steven," said Leigha.

"Thanks, Eve," said Dax. A very fun trick on some first years was beginning to form in Dax's mind....


message 42: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
((Ohh! haha good!))

Eve caught the mischevious glint in Dax's eyes and began to grin. She had a feeling that they were having very similar thoughts.

Steven shook his head as if Eve was so immature. In fact, he thought a first year prank would be fun, but he wasn't going to admit he agreed with anything Eve said.


message 43: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Leigha couldn't help herself. She smiled. "Oh, you guys are evil."

Dax grinned. "Right, like you aren't going to join us." He'd known that she'd end up tagging along, no matter how mean she thought it was. She'd be amused.


message 44: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"True," Steven admitted, feeling like it wouldn't hurt his pride as much if Leigha was giving in too.


message 45: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Crimzon rolled her eyes, "ANYONE KNOW MESOPATAMIAN LANGUAGE?"


message 46: by Taylor, Head of Hufflepuff (new)

Taylor (taylorjaylene) | 1220 comments Mod
Charlotte jumped. "Erm, no....."

Dax and Leigha both shook their heads. "Not a clue," said Leigha.

Dax leaned closer to Leigha, Steven, and Eve. "So, do we wanna do this thing, or what?"


message 47: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments "Thnak you." She said rolling her eyes.


message 48: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
Madame Pince came over, glared at Crimzon, and walked off.

"I think you should be quieter," Steven whispered to Crimzon. "We don't want to get kicked out."


message 49: by Miinnniiiiie(: (new)

Miinnniiiiie(: | 642 comments Crimzon smirked.


message 50: by Ra-Ra (Laura), Headmistress *RUMBLEROAR!* (new)

Ra-Ra (Laura) | 941 comments Mod
"Seriously!" Eve said. "We're going to have to look up serpopards a lot if we're going to have a convincing story to tell the first years. They might look them up and check our facts."
